WHEN THE GAME IS OVER IT IS JUST REALLY BEGINNING (DR.SDWJR)

If they’re not discussing or opening up about their future goals they’re straight up playing games with you.Nobody who wants a lifetime with a person will just go day after day without planning or discussing a lifetime future together.Everyone has a future plan and if your half isn’t telling you.You not the one!They are playing game with you I called grown up.

There are other people who will play the game if they know their other half is playing a game.For those who got children,divorced or was married and financially stable and meet a female who is on game,and you see it.Well,you have nothing to lose but go with the flow.It might be your thing if you don’t want commitment.

“PLAYING A ARROGANT FOOL ISN’T A DISEASE OR IGNORANT IN A RELATIONSHIP.”

I was chatting with my college buddies and we were talking about treating people as being grown up verses treating them as a spouse.I stated that if your spouse treats you like a grown up rather than as a spouse.They’re irunning a game on you.I mean a straight up game with a cold heart.

What spouse or partner will always and continually don’t discuss their future plan with their other half.What spouse will watch their other half spend unnecessary money and they don’t say a word but watch it happened.They destroy things you own not thing your own together.They’re partially there for other reasons like you could be a future potential for them to depend on.

If your spouse sees you as a grown up rather than as a spouse or partner.I suggest you start to see things the same way.No spouse will treat their other half as a grown up when it comes to their livelihood or lifetime partnership that carries decision that could affect both forever.

The ones who are running a straight up game I called grown up.They don’t have to create a personalized distance,and in fact they wouldn’t, they want you to figure it out on your own.Most of us,who are married don’t really think this can ever happened.But it does happened all the time we just don’t realize it.

When was the last time they really got you covered where you could say,yeah! I am convinced they’re in this for real? They truly love me and care about me.If you don’t feel it please don’t try to fake it.It will leave you ruin for life.

“Love talk can be fake talk if you’re not step ahead of that action.”

Protecting my family from racial injustice in America.Stevie Wonder Tells Oprah.

Stevie Wonder is heading to West Africa for a profound reason.

During a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, the 25-time Grammy-winner, 70, opened up about his future plans to live in Ghana indefinitely — as part of his efforts to shield his lineage of grandchildren and great grandchildren from racial injustice in the U.S.

“I wanna see this nation smile again,” he told Oprah, 67. “And I want to see it before I leave to travel to move to Ghana, because I’m going to do that.”

When asked if he plans to relocate permanently, the star replied, “I am, because I don’t want to see my children’s children’s children have to say, ‘Oh, please like me. Please respect me. Please know that I am important. Please value me.’ What kinda [life is that]?”

The star’s decision may be influenced by a number of reasons — but it is often said that living in majority Black regions gives Black individuals a sense of safety, confidence, liberation and pride. Many argue that within the U.S., attending HBCUs (historically Black colleges and universities) gives American Black students the same feelings.

Wonder has been considering moving to Ghana since as early as 1994, per the Orlando Sentinel. At the time, the “I Just Called to Say I Love You” hitmaker told a Washington gathering of the International Association of African American Music that he had fallen in love with the country and “there’s more of a sense of community there.”

Last month, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. day, the musician wrote an emotional letter to the late civil rights leader and addressed the lack of racial advancement since the fight for equality, which began in the U.S. in the mid-1950s.

“Dear Dr. King, I met you when I was 14 years of age,” he began. “You were a true hero and you became an inspiration.”

Wonder later said, “It is painful to know that needle has not moved one iota. For 36 years, we’ve had a national holiday honoring your birthday and principles, yet you would not believe the lack of progress. It makes me physically sick. I am sick of politicians trying to find an easy solution to a 400-year problem.”

The vocalist concluded his letter with a call-to-action for “all those in the Senate to speak truth to what they know they can physically see and begin the steps towards accountability, forgiveness and then healing.”

TREATED THEM LIKE A GROWN UP AND NOT AS A SPOUSE OR PARTNER(DR.SDWJR)

At any stage of a relationship, building up the courage to have difficult conversations with your partner can be a task. Though it may be hard to accomplish, the important thing is that it gets done and usually, your relationship benefits from it. If you’ve gotten to the point where you’ve found having those “hard” talks pointless, Jorge said that it is probably because the space between you and your partner is growing.

“I WANT TOLD TO STOP TREATING MY PARTNER AS GROWNUP AND START TREATING THEM AS THE MAIN PART OF MY LIFE.”

Avoiding difficult relationship issue altogether or having them become explosive to the point you can’t talk about them anymore should be a red flag in any relationship.Either way, if the difficult issue goes unaddressed, it essentially creates a sore spot of resentment in the relationship that continues to create more frustration and exhaustion.

This can add fire to other fights or again cause withdrawing from talking to our partner all together creating opportunities to distance yourself. Successful couples don’t avoid the hard discussions and they don’t fight their way through them either. They talk about them in a way that creates closeness.”

Although you may not want to admit that things are falling apart in your relationship, when it gets to the point where you are having more unhappy times than happy ones, you may need to come to the realization that you and your partner are growing apart.You choose to share your news with other people instead of your partner.

Another huge sign that you are growing apart is when you think of investing in your future and you are uncomfortable moving forward with your partner. Especially when it comes to long-term goals,” she said. “An example of this is if you know you may want another baby or to invest in a home, but don’t see yourself doing it with them.

It’s very common to run to your partner as soon as you have some important news to share. Whether it’s a raise at work or devastating news about your family, there’s no one other than your partner that you would typically run to first.

“One red flag that you are growing apart is when something good (or bad) happens to you, and you don’t want to tell your partner first,” she said. “You have other people you would rather share with first and they are no longer your closest person.”

“You’ll know that you’re growing apart when you have an opportunity to take a vacation or you get some extra free time off from work and your S.O. is not the person that you want to spend your time with,” Sassoon said. “Your partner should be the person you want to relax and vacay with — not the person that you need a vacation from.”

Making the choice to be with someone is usually because you see a future with them. And in most cases, it’s something that is lifelong. When you start to think of your future and your partner no longer has a place in it though, you may be growing apart.

Intimacy with your partner is not all about sex. Sometimes it means just being able to lay together, rub one another’s back or feet, or even just holding hands. According to psychotherapist and founder of Trillium Counseling Devon Jorge, MSW, RSW though, once it’s gotten to the point that this has stopped, your relationship may be at its end.

“If we start to find holding our partner’s hand, pecks on the lips, hugging, having our partner see us naked, or sleeping in the same bed make us uncomfortable, these are all signs that there is an unspoken distance in the relationship.

These rather simple and yet intimate actions make us feel awkward or feel weird and foreign and could mean that you need to take a deeper look at your relationship.

AMERICA OWES BLACK PEOPLE REPARATION.HERSCHEL WALKER IS SELLOUT (SDWJR.BLOG)

Walker, a standout athlete at the University of Georgia who won the Heisman Trophy in 1982 before launching a long professional football career, questioned the logistical feasibility of reparations and dismissed the idea itself as divisive.

“We use Black power to create white guilt,” he said early in his opening statement. “My approach is biblical. How can I ask my Heavenly Father to forgive me if I can’t forgive my brother?”

He added: “Reparations teach separation. Slavery ended over 130 years ago. How can a father ask his son to spend prison time for a crime he committed?”

After calling America “the greatest country in the world” and “a melting pot of a lot of great races,” Walker, a longtime friend of former President Donald Trump who was a featured speaker at the 2020 Republican National Convention, then launched into the practicality of reparation payments.

“Reparations, where does the money come from?” he asked the House Judiciary Committee subcommittee. “Does it come from all the other races except the Black taxpayers? Who is Black? What percentage of Black must you be to receive reparations? Do you go to 23andMe or a DNA test to determine the percentage of Blackness?”

He added: “Some Black immigrants weren’t here during slavery, nor their ancestors. Some states didn’t even have slavery.”

Concluding his opening statement, he said: “I feel it continues to let us know we’re still African American, rather than just American. Reparation or atonement is outside the teaching of Jesus Christ.”

Reparations have been part of the national dialogue for years, with supporters arguing that the US has never atoned for the forced labor of slavery and lands taken away from Black Americans over the course of generations.

The writer Ta-Nehisi Coates explored the idea in “The Case for Reparations,” his 2014 article for The Atlantic, which urged the country to confront its past.

“An America that asks what it owes its most vulnerable citizens is improved and humane,” he wrote. “An America that looks away is ignoring not just the sins of the past but the sins of the present and the certain sins of the future. More important than any single check cut to any African American, the payment of reparations would represent America’s maturation out of the childhood myth of its innocence into a wisdom worthy of its founders.”

The issue became a focal line of questioning for Democratic presidential candidates as they started to enter the 2020 campaign, especially with Black Americans serving as a bedrock of the party.

The issue became even more prominent last summer after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis prompted a wave of racial and social-justice reckonings across the country and increased recognition of the Black Lives Matter movement.

There are several ideas for how reparations might work, though the Review of Black Political Economy estimated that a sufficient reparations package would cost roughly $12 trillion and give each descendant of slavery $254,782.

The House Judiciary Committee’s Democratic chairman, Rep. Jerry Nadler, characterized House Resolution 40 as a starting point, saying the proposal “sets forth a process by which a diverse group of experts and stakeholders can study the complex issues involved and make recommendations.”

“The discussion of reparations is a journey in which the road traveled is almost more important than the exact destination,” he added.

The White House said last week that President Joe Biden would back a study of the issue.

“He certainly would support a study of reparations,” the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, said. “He understands we don’t need a study to take action right now on systemic racism, so he wants to take actions within his own government in the meantime.”

NYPD and FBI were involved in the 1965 assassination of Malcolm X.Secret letter revealed

The family of civil rights leader Malcolm X brought forward new evidence linking authorities to his death.

The evidence was a letter written by a former undercover cop, Raymond Wood, on his death bed.

The confession suggests that the NYPD and FBI were involved in Malcolm X’s murder.

New evidence announced by Malcolm X’s family claims that the NYPD and FBI were involved with the civil rights leader’s assassination.

A letter written by Raymond Wood, an undercover cop who worked for the New York City Police department between 1964 to 1971, included a confession about his role in Malcolm X’s death and claimed that the FBI and the NYPD were involved in the coverup.

“I participated in actions that in hindsight were deplorable and detrimental to the advancement of my own black people,” Wood wrote in the letter obtained by Insider. It was released by a relative upon his death. “My actions on behalf of the New York City Police Department (BOSSI) were done under duress and fear that if I did not follow the orders of my handlers I could face detrimental consequences.”

In the letter, Wood said that he was assigned, without training, to the BOSSI unit to “infiltrate civil rights organizations throughout New York City,” and “to find evidence of criminal activity, so the FBI could discredit and arrest its leaders.”

Wood’s letter says he was tasked to ensure that members of Malcolm X’s security team were arrested days before a speaking engagement at Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan in 1965, where he was shot 15 times.

“It was my assignment to draw the two men into a felonious federal crime, so that they could be arrested by the FBI and kept away from managing Malcolm X’s Audubon Ballroom door security on February 21, 1965,” the letter says.

Three men, all members of the Nation of Islam, were later convicted in the murder of Malcolm X, who died at the age of 39. Mujahid Abdul Halim, Muhammad Abdul Aziz, and Khalil Islam were sentenced to life in prison, but Aziz and Islam claimed they had nothing to do with the murder.

According to the letter, Wood wrote that Thomas Johnson, also known as Khalil Islam, was “wrongfully convicted to protect my cover and the secrets of the FBI and NYPD.”

Wood’s letter, which is dated from 2011, was read to Malcolm X’s family by Reggie Wood – a relative of the late NYPD officer – at a news conference on Saturday, according to a press release from national civil rights attorney, Ben Crump.

According to the BBC, the family of Malcolm X is calling to reopen the murder investigation into the civil rights icon. As the publication reported, Malcolm X’s daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz, said, “Any evidence that provides greater insight into the truth behind that terrible tragedy should be thoroughly investigated.”

Orange County Sheriff’s Department killed a Black man for jaywalking.

The video and images are compilations of police audio, dashcam footage, nearby motel surveillance and video footage taken by a witness. The officers did not have body cameras on.

Officers stopped the man around 1:30 p.m. near Hotel Miramar at El Camino Real and Avenida San Gabriel because he was allegedly jaywalking.

“Are you going to stop or are we going to have to make you stop?” an officer asked Reinhold.

He responds with “For what? For what?”

The officer responds, “Jaywalking.”

One officer approaches him and Reinhold responds, “Why are you touching me?,” as the other officer tries to prevent him from walking.

He is then tackled.

“During the use of force one deputy is heard on the witness’ cellphone video saying, ‘He’s got my gun’ multiple times,” said an officer narrating the video.

They continue to struggle, then two gunshots are heard. Officers attempt to give Reinhold CPR but he was pronounced dead at the scene. The officers can be heard disagreeing about whether he had jaywalked or not since he had crossed at the controlled intersection.

The family released a statement saying, “The new footage released by the OC Sheriff’s office today confirms what we knew all along – the involved deputies had no reason to stop Mr. Reinhold. The family attorney, John Taylor said the officers, “created and escalated,” the situation.

The family of Kurt Andras Reinhold has filed a wrongful death suit after it appears police engaged and killed him due to a supposed pedestrian violation

In a video that surfaced this week, it appears that the Orange County Sheriff’s Department killed a Black man for jaywalking. Video of police fatally shooting a man, Kurt Andras Reinhold, 42, was made public on Wednesday. The incident occurred on Sept. 23, of last year, but the wasn’t seen until now.

Black Man Sues Chicago Police Accused of Brutalizing Him After Stopping Him Because He Had ‘A Shocked Look on His Face’

Another day, another Black man harassed and brutalized by police officers while in the commission of…minding his own business.

Leroy Kennedy IV has filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Police Department alleging that he was “traumatized” by the actions of officers who arrested him last August while he was walking to the store. Recently released police body camera footage shows part of the altercation and arrest that led to him spending four days in jail only to have charges of aggravated battery to an officer dismissed later on.

Kennedy spoke with ABC 7 about the incident and what is seen in the body-cam video—which was released without audio—that is now evidence for his lawsuit.

Kennedy said he was walking to a store last August in Humboldt Park when two Chicago Police officers ran up to him, slammed him against a brick wall and smashed his head onto the sidewalk more than once.

“I told him like ‘Sir, I’m not resisting. I just want to get my glasses,’” Kennedy said. “He slammed me again thinking I’m resisting.”

The officers were soon surrounded by angry witnesses at the scene. The video appears to show Kennedy wobbling as he’s led away in handcuffs.

He said he suffered a concussion as well as cuts to his face and hand and wrist injuries.

What should really raise eyebrows is the excuse police officers gave for approaching Kennedy in the first place. According to ABC, the officers said in their police report that they stopped him because he had “a shocked look on his face” when he saw police, and somehow that brought the cops to the conclusion that he might have been “attempting to conceal a firearm.”

Yeeeeeah, nah; you don’t get to just guess at something like that.

“The police couldn’t even pretend he did anything,” Christopher Smith, Kennedy’s attorney, told ABC. “So you have a police report which gives no description of a crime and no reason for approaching him, other than his bulging eyes.”

Black people all over this country will tell you that they don’t need to be doing anything illegal for them to get nervous when police officers come around. To people who don’t understand the toll constant racial profiling takes on Black people and think we’re just being paranoid, it’s worth pointing out that Kennedy—who was literally just walking and not “attempting to conceal a firearm”—ended up bruised up and in jail after the altercation with cops we supposedly have no reason to fear.

“It left me feeling traumatized, man, I ain’t gonna lie,” Kennedy said. “You get nervous. You get even more nervous once you see the police.”

Exactly.

Muhammad Ali’s son said his dad wouldn’t have supported Black Lives Matter movement or protests over George Floyd’s death

Muhammad Ali Jr., the son of the late boxing icon Muhammad Ali, told The New York Post in an hour-long interview that his father wouldn’t have supported the Black Lives Matter movement, calling it “racist.”
Ali, who died aged 74 in 2016 as a result of complications of Parkinson’s disease, was a known activist who in 1964 joined the Nation of Islam.
Ali Jr. said he believed his father would’ve supported the “all lives matter” movement, and thought the legendary boxer would’ve believed current protestors were “nothing but devils” after some demonstrations have turned destructive.
He said he supported President Trump and believed his father would have, too.

Muhammad Ali Jr. said he did not believe his father would have supported the current Black Lives Matter movement, calling participants in the movement “racist,” The New York Post reported Saturday.

“I think it’s racist,” Ali Jr., the legendary boxer’s only biological son whose relationship with his father “completely fell apart” in the final decade of his life, said, according to the report.

He added: “It’s not just Black lives matter, white lives matter, Chinese lives matter, all lives matter, everybody’s life matters. God loves everyone — he never singled anyone out. Killing is wrong no matter who it is.”

”My father would have said, ‘They ain’t nothing but devils,” Ali Jr, 47, told The New York Post. “My father said, ‘all lives matter.’ I don’t think he’d agree.”

Ali Jr. pointed toward some of the more destructive actions of some protestors in recent weeks as part of his own dissatisfaction with the Black Lives Matter movement. While some protests — particularly early on — turned destructive, many of the still ongoing demonstrations have remained peaceful.

“Black Lives Matter is not a peaceful protest. Antifa never wanted it peaceful. I would take them all out,” Ali Jr. said.

“It’s a racial statement,” he said of Black Lives Matter. “It’s pitting black people against everyone else. It starts racial things to happen; I hate that.”

In 2016, Ali’s most famous child, television personality and retired boxer Laila Ali, made similar statement, saying, “All lives matter.”

“Yes, Black lives matter. Yes, white lives matter, asian lives matter. All lives matter,” the boxing world champion said. “And that’s kind of what my focus is.”

On Wednesday, Ali told KTLA she thought it was a “shame” that Black Americans were still fighting to secure the same things her father supported.

“His grandsons are even having to fight two generations later, but we’re going to keep at it because it’s all about equality for Black people and all people,” she said.

Nationwide protests against police brutality began following the police killing of 46-year-old George Floyd in Minneapolis. A since-fired police officer was recorded kneeling on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes while he said he couldn’t breathe and even after he lost consciousness. Three other officers have also been fired from the Minneapolis Police Department. All four have been charged for their involvement.

“Don’t bust up s–t, don’t trash the place,” Ali Jr. told The Post. “You can peacefully protest.”

As NPR noted, his father, the legendary late boxer often nicknamed “The Greatest,” was a known activist, notably making headlines in 1967 for his refusal to be inducted into the U.S. Army in 1967 citing his opposition to the Vietnam War, his religious beliefs, and his identity as a Black Muslim.

In 1964, Ali, born Cassius Clay, joined the Nation of Islam under the guidance of his spiritual leader Malcolm X and changed his name to Muhammad Ali to rid himself of his “slave name.”

In an hour-long interview with the news outlet, Ali Jr. defended the police and said they “don’t wake up and think, ‘I’m going to kill a n—-r today or kill a white man.”

“I never had a bad scene with a cop. They’ve always been nice and protect me. I don’t have a problem with them,” he told The New York Post.

While he said the former Minneapolis Police Officer should not have killed Floyd, he said there was more to the story.

“The officer was wrong with killing that person, but people don’t realize there was more footage than what they showed. The guy resisted arrest, the officer was doing his job, but he used the wrong tactic,” he said, adding he believed that antifa, the leaderless decentralized group of left-wing activists, had been responsible for turning protests violent and that he agreed with the president that they should be classified as terrorist groups.

Ali Jr. said he believed his father would have supported President Trump.

‘Slavery ended over 130 years ago’: Former NFL player Herschel Walker says Black Americans shouldn’t get reparations

Herschel Walker said during a US House hearing that Black Americans should not receive reparations.

“Reparations teach separation,” Walker argued. “Slavery ended over 130 years ago.”

The Democratic-led House is poised to create a commission to study reparation proposals.

Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories.

Former NFL player Herschel Walker last Wednesday said that Black Americans should not receive reparations for slavery during a congressional hearing on the issue.

The virtual hearing was being held for House Resolution 40, sponsored by Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, which would create a commission to study reparation proposals.

Walker, a standout athlete at the University of Georgia who won the Heisman Trophy in 1982 before launching a longtime professional football career, said that reparations could force Black Americans to use genetics companies to determine payouts based on their ancestry and while also claiming that some Black Americans had involvement in the slave trade.

We use Black power to create white guilt,” he argued. “My approach is biblical…how can I ask my Heavenly Father to forgive me if I can’t forgive my brother? America is the greatest country in the world for me, a melting pot of a lot of great races, a lot of great minds that have come together with different ideas to make Americans the greatest country on Earth.”

He added: “Many have died trying to get into America. No one is dying trying to get out.”

Walker, a longtime friend of former President Donald Trump and a featured speaker at the 2020 Republican National Convention, then launched into the practicality of making reparation payments.

“Reparations, where does the money come from?,” he asked the House Judiciary Committee subcommittee. “Does it come from all the other races except the Black taxpayers? Who is Black? What percentage of Black must you be to receive reparations? Do you go to 23andMe or a DNA test to determine the percentage of blackness? Some Black immigrants weren’t here during slavery, nor their ancestors. Some states didn’t even have slavery.”

He added: “Reparations teach separation. Slavery ended over 130 years ago. How can a father ask his son to spend prison time for a crime he committed? I feel it continues to let us know we’re still African American, rather than just American. Reparation or atonement is outside the teaching of Jesus Christ.”

The Review of Black Political Economy estimated that a reparations package that sufficiently addresses past injustices would cost roughly $12 trillion and give each descendant of slavery $254,782.

Democratic House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York said that there’s a possibility that reparations might not involve financial payments, but argued that the proposal “sets forth a process by which a diverse group of experts and stakeholders can study the complex issues involved and make recommendations.”
